Hadn't heard the new one, but liked their older releases (not so much the Disco things) and have seen them live. Will have to give it a shot.

I'm glad I hear it, it's my most listened to album this year.

Definitely should, it's quite a bit different (quite a bit better, in my opinion) than their past albums. It's sort of a concept album as well, which is interesting for them. Quite a bit more vocals and almost poppy sounding songs compared to a lot of the noise stuff they did before. The subject matter is extremely bleak and dark though, which is a cool contrast to how the poppier songs sound. It's pretty diverse as well, which I like.

Great album.

Well if that's the case, I think we collectively agreed that all lists need to be approved by me before acceptance.

Rank 15 albums and assign them points based on the ranking. Make sure that the points add up to 100. There are a few examples in here.

Yours was actually fine, because we encourage people who haven't listened to that many albums to still post in here even if they aren't assigning points. I was referring to BigMacPhisto and Tourist, who both submitted lists where they were able to divy up 100 points to fewer than 15 albums, which kind of doesn't work mathematically.

I'm not sure if it will make my list, but "Stonefist" is one of the songs of the year.

I could put in 6 more albums and give them all zero points....

I listened to 14 new albums this year, but I didn't want to give points to the other 5. I discovered a ton of music this year from 2012-2014 that I like, though, so there's that.

I've listened to hundreds of albums this year, like any other year. Just being strategic and also had a ton of "proper" releases that I handed out an 80/100 on AOTY, so a bit hard to distinguish between a few dozen albums of that caliber.
